yes I'm crazy enough to pull off all the ribbon trim & replace it with the gingham. Although it's a quarter inch too narrow it's a much better tonal match.
Cos I only had 6.5m I didn't run the trim down the open robe skirts. And I had just enough to do the bows on the sleeve fronts & centre front.
And Baby (my vintage bernina) had the timing go whack tonight. Thank goodness for Back Up Baby. I used my even older but new to me Bernina 125 Jubilae with great success. Apart from filling a bobbin - I coudn't get that right. :rollseyes: You know you've used a great many machines when you can just thread it without opening the manual. I need daylight to read the tiny manual on bobbin winding.
oopsie, time to pack!
